  1. Thats where I did my hospital time when I went though EMT-P school at Davenport University in 95-96........wow.....glad that eneryone is ok.
  2. Sounds good but ouch when it to tax time.......3 wks on 3 wks off or go as a casual on a call basis. Why leave the rock, things are inproving slowly. Bunch of us Nova Scotia CCP'S are turning things around. Say hi to Cory Banks from Sledogg next time u see him.
  3. All I have to say is WOW! Now from what i have been thought and follow is treat the pt not the machine. He is having c/p simular to previous M.I's, and has an extensive cardiac hx, for the love of god treat it. As for the absence of elevation in the 12 lead, I would agree with possibility of non-stemi mi. The only reliable way to rule out an MI is through labs. I agree, listen to your pt. He is probably on blood thinners so ASA is not a big deal if not sure give it to him unless other contraindications. Give Nitro, DO A 12 LEAD, has he gone into CHF or cardiogenic shock call ALS so next
  4. Here in Nova Scotia, we don't have pumps on board but if it goes out on a pump it stays on a pump. its goes to the ALS Crew, PCP'S can manage a NACL on a pump but the rest to ACP'S. We do alot of antibotics, panto etc from rural hospitals,

So stop and assist but stay in your scope. Again, a tremendous story there. I thought I had read something similar before... http://www.emtcity.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.ph...sc&start=30 sledogg1 wrot
  8. Good Samaritan does not apply for a trained medic, you can get nailed if found out you did not stop..........and how can you sleep that night if u passed an MVC and did not assist. Do your 1st aider stuff and that is it till you are trained. Keep the glucometer and b/p cuff at home till u get the diploma.........remember radial and carodic pulses tell you alot. Still like the 1 that I stopped at a mvc motorcycle out of province where the medic were ass's (BLS) and pushed me aside and i offered ALS support iv. ett i said tramatic cx trauma I got we got it.......till they lifted back the sheet
  9. You did that rt thing, you did not abandon anyone cause a medic was on scene with same qualifications..........but could you met up with the ALS for a ALS intercept and let the ALS jump into the bls rig and continue on ??? and the bls unit head back to the scene?? Not saying you are wrong but suggesting. Do u have aircare?? How did the pt do at the end?
  10. Hay Dust, long time no chat.....................as Connie mentioned earlier our policy/protocal does not include this, look but don't manual dilate. Trained in class and rotation as the EMT-P, ACP scope but not allowed on the rig like catherazion....... in breech though allowed to if head does not deliver 2-3 min place gloved hand -figers in a v position over baby's face and push vagina away.
  11. In 18 - 19 yrs doing this and delivered 5 , I have never inserted fingers for a dilation check. Believe me you know, if she not a crowing don't go a measuring!!!!!!!!!! With ambulance chasing lawyers out there, you don't have a leg to stand on. Yes, we are trained in school and rotations but really..........do u want to go there.
